Tomb of the Unknown overlooking DC--Memorial Day 2016
So many men and women have given their lives so that the city in the background can retain its power and place in the world. I wanted to capture a perspective that shows the tomb "bigger" than the city itself, yet guarded by a lone protector, the two together remind me that the price of freedom is greater than the peace and power it bestows.
